I am one of many having a change to my lupus label. My most recent appointment with a new rheumatologist at a new hospital, has resulted in her querying MCTD instead of lupus. Providing I receive the right treatment, I'm beyond caring which label I am given. My employers however have been very supportive and I have been able to make minor changes to my working hours courtesy of the equality act (reasonable changes). This came about with a lupus diagnosis. Does anybody know if MCTD is also covered in the equality act? I'm wondering if this could now alter the way my employers deal with me.
